    I made this sweet potato pudding recipe and it tasted real good. The only thing is that I would have added a bit more sugar to it, but the spices blended together so well

      Mix Spice is Allspice and sells in U.S.

    • Gary

      Allspice sounds like it is a mixture of spices so sometimes people mistake it for mixed spice, but they are not the same. Allspice is a single spice.
      “Allspice, also known as Jamaica pepper, myrtle pepper, pimenta, or pimento,[a] is the dried unripe berry of Pimenta dioica, a midcanopy tree native to the Greater Antilles, southern Mexico, and Central America, now cultivated in many warm parts of the world.” (

    My mom use to make this pudding when I was a little girl. She never put any kind of fruit in hers. She only used the grated sweet potatoes. Will the other the amount of the other ingredients change if the other fruits were omitted?
